In March this year, Samsung Electronics acquired Harman, a US audio and car electronics maker in a deal worth about $8 billion. The company's area of specialization didn't change after the acquisition as it still focuses on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets. Now, it has collaborated with Under Armour to unveil a wireless neckband headphone - UA Sport Wireless Flex headphones. This versatile device which is designed for athletes comes with a natural and sleek design combined with an exceptional sound quality.
With the UA Sport Wireless Flex, users will have a comfortable wearing and general user experience as it comes with an adjustable bend-and-stay Flex Zones in the neckband. In addition, this wireless headset is equipped with a Speed Charge Battery which ensures that you get a one hour of playback time after charging for only 5 minutes. When fully charged, it delivers 11 hours continuous playback time. In low light conditions, its RunSafe LED feature with three flashing modes enhances visibility which makes it totally safe.
HARMAN's Senior Vice President and General Manager (Consumer Audio), Dave Rogers, said
“UA Sport Wireless Flex headphones are made for the modern athlete with customized fit at the neck and ears, bold, powerful JBL Charged Sound, and RunSafe LED that helps keeps athletes safe,”...“We’ve married the always-on convenience of a neckband headphone with the authentic athletic features that the UA-JBL partnership stands for, to enable a seamless transition from the gym to home, and everything in between.”
